As part of her promotional tour for “Jumping the Broom,” the actress stopped by Chelsea Handler’s show and dished with the comedienne host. After chatting a little about her relationship with R&B crooner Robin Thicke, Patton expressed that she was waiting for the time when her son would start to look like her.
“He’s blond, he has blue eyes. It’s crazy. Everybody’s like, did you have anything to do with this? They think we like adopted a Russian child…and everyday I’m like he’s gonna get blacker, no look.”
Retorting, Handler spoke up saying that she though it was funny because, in her words:
“when you don’t look like your baby at all people think you’re the nanny.”
Personally, I am all but done with Handler’s little one off wise cracks on colored folk but Patton, who has a white mother and black father, seemed to take no offense at the comment agreeing:
“They absolutely do. And everyday, I threaten to put baby oil on him and like set him out in the sun. You know, child services is calling me right now.”
Patton says that she knows her child will eventually come to resemble her more saying:
“Blackness takes time. A tan is coming in, the hair’s curlier, I’m telling you.”
